Greetings from the National Library of Australia, where Professor 
Everardus Overgaauw, head of the Manuscript Department of the Berlin 
State Library is talking about the manuscripts on display in Canberra in 
the exhibition: "Handwritten: Ten Centuries of Manuscript Treasures from 
Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin": http://www.nla.gov.au/event/2345

On display are handwritten documents by: Bach, Beethoven, Cook, Curie, 
Dante, Darwin, Dickens, Dostoyevsky, Einstein, Galileo, Goethe, Haydn, 
Kafka, Kant, Kepler, Machiavelli, Marx, Michelangelo, Napoleon, Newton, 
Nietzsche, Nightingale, Nobel, Pasteur and Watt.

The exhibition is open until 18 March 2012 and is free, but it is a good 
idea to book a free ticket on-line. There is someone sitting in the 
foyer of the library with an Apple iPad, to check the bookings:
